Skylight Well

Recommended Posts

Any one out there have any suggestions how to replicate this skylight?  It is actually a large light well (14'x10') with a grid system system below.  This is just for rendering purposes.

Thanks in advance.

Make one and replicate it, using transform and replicate tool. Control your frames depth and others in skylight dbx.

Place a window in a wall.

Configure the window with lites, etc, to match what you want. 

Use the delete surfaces tool to delete the wall.

In a 3D view use Convert to Symbol. 

Rotate and place in a ceiling hole.

      I have been designing and drafting Residential and Commercial buildings for 20 years. I am available to do drafting for any size project. 
      I am fully versed in AutoCAD (started with AutoCAD 9 - NOT a windows program) and am fairly new to Chief.  I started using Home Designer Pro 2017, 2018 and then found the program was quite a bit different from AutoCAD.  Upon review of the Chief Archiect Premier X8, I decided to switch to the more powerful program.  I have used X8, X9 and now X10.  Would love to have the opportunity to design more houses or buildings using this program.
      I have drafted well over 100 residential homes.  I also have drafted Commercial buildings.   
      I live in British Columbia, and have designed houses for municipalities in BC as well as Alberta and New Brunswick.  I am fairly knowledgeable on the BC Building code and its requirements when it comes to residential houses in BC.  Municipalities I have worked with include: Calgary, Whistler, Vancouver, Williams Lake, Dawson Creek, Fort St. John, Lake Country, Penticton, Oliver, Osoyoos, Vernon and Moncton NB.
      I am currently using Chief Architect Premier X10 as well as AutoCAD Architecture 2014.

      I would love to engage the services of a CA user, ideally in my present location of La Mesa, CA (so I can look over your shoulder)! it is a relatively simple, rectangular layout). I need to describe my exsisting house and, if time permits, apply a couple of my ideas for renovation (I lack the technical skill set at this point to carry out a few simple changes I would like to make). It would be great to get some help with landcaping, too, if time permits.
